Mouser Electronics, Inc., the industry’s leading New Product Introduction (NPI) distributor with the widest selection of semiconductors and electronic components, announces a global distribution agreement with Rigado to distribute Rigado’s wireless modules, development kits, and gateways. Rigado’s suite of edge connectivity solutions for the Internet of Things (IoT) enable engineers to easily design, deploy and scale low-energy wireless architectures, reducing the cost and risk of commercial IoT deployments. The Rigado product line available from Mouser Electronics includes the R41Z and BMD-300 series wireless modules and development kits.
Rigado’s Bluetooth low energy modules are advanced, highly flexible, ultra-low power multiprotocol System-on-Modules (SoMs) for portable, extremely low power embedded systems. The BMD-300 Series from Rigado is a line of ultra-low power Bluetooth 5 modules based on the Nordic nRF52 system-on-chip (SoC). With an Arm Cortex-M4F core and embedded 2.4 GHz transceiver, the series provides a complete RF solution available in three variants: internal antenna (BMD-300), U.FL connector (BMD-301), and ultra-miniature (BMD-350).
The R41Z multi-mode module supports both Bluetooth 4.2 and the 802.15.4-based Thread protocol on an ultra-low-power, highly integrated single-chip device. Built on an NXP KW41Z microcontroller with an Arm Cortex-M0+ processor, the R41Z effectively balances power and performance with scalability to provide an ideal solution for applications such as commercial lighting and building automation.
Both the R41Z and BMD-300 series modules are fully certified and supported by Rigado evaluation kits. These evaluation kits feature Arduino Uno-compatible headers, power and virtual COM over USB, two capacitive touch buttons, and built-in sensors, making it easy to rapidly prototype smart devices.
